Celtic Woman - Siúil a Rún (Walk my Love)

Siuil A Run
This is a traditional song, one of the “tear your heart out” variety, about a young girl and her Wild Geese who’s off to war.

I wish I was on yonder hill
‘Tis there I’d sit and cry my fill,
And every tear would turn a mill,
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan


Siuil, siuil, siul a run,
Siuil go sochair agus siuil go ciuin
Siuil go doras agus ealaigh lion
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan

[Chorus:]


I’ll sell my rock, I’ll sell my reel,
I’ll sell my only spinning wheel,
To buy my love a sword of steel
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan.
[Chorus:]

I’ll dye my petticoats, I’ll dye them red,
And 'round the world I’ll beg my bread,
Until my parents shall wish me dead,
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan.
[Chorus:]

But now my love has gone to France,
To try his fortune to advance;
If he e'er comes back, 'tis but a chance,
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan
[Chorus:]

I wish, I wish, I wish in vain,
I wish I had my heart again,

And vainly think I’d not complain,
Is go dte tu mo mhuirnin slan
